Ridge Meadows RCMP have arrested two men connected with an alleged illegal drug operation.

During the evening hours of May 19, the Street Enforcement Unit arrested two men after seeing what appeared to be a drug transaction taking place inside a car in the area of 207th Street and Lougheed Highway.  The investigation led the plain clothes officers to seize a quantity of prepackaged drugs police believe are fentanyl and cocaine, along with money that will be used as evidence.

“Ridge Meadows RCMP continue to focus on the distribution of drugs in our community, which this case highlights,” said Cpl. Brenda Winpenny. “Investigators are recommending drug charges against both the individuals, and the matter remains under investigation.”
